About

All my Alzheimer's fidget quilts are made with love and attention to detail with your loved one in mind.

I discovered fidget quilts in the Summer of 2015 when my beloved sister-in-law Alexandria had a massive stroke. I looked on the internet to see what I could do to help in her recovery. When I read about fidget quilts I was so excited! I have been sewing since I was eight (that's 50 years!), and doing all kinds of arts and crafts as well. I made a quilt for Alexandria, and she loved it. The staff and families at her facility ask me about the quilt, and a business was born. In the past (nearly) three years I have sold and donated over 2, 000 fidget quilts on-line, at Farmer's Markets, craft fairs, for raffles at Alzheimer's Walks and special education classrooms all over the US, as well as my local senior center. I am so proud and honored that I have been able to bring some measure of comfort to so many individuals and families.

Frequently asked questions
Wholesale availability

I do offer wholesale prices for multiple items. Please contact me for details.

How do I know which fidget quilt will be best for my loved one?

My goal with each fidget quilt is to provide an engaging exploration of touch and an enjoyable visual experience for your loved one.

The best way to decide which quilt will work is to pick something that represents your loved one in some way. Think about their favorite color, sports team, former career, hobbies, etc. In addition, think about their 'fidget habits' such as folding, pulling threads, rubbing, saving coins, etc.

When in doubt please feel free to contact me for suggestions. I have fidgets that address all types of fidgeting. I can add a fidget to an existing quilt or make a Custom quilt especially for your loved one.

Will this be safe for my loved one?

Yes! Safety is super important that me. Though all fidgets are stitched for security, and quality checked prior to shipping, I recommend responsible supervision when using the quilt.

If you have concerns about your loved one pulling buttons or beads off or trying to put them, in their mouth, we are happy to remove and replace fidget items thar present a concern. Just ask!

Care instructions

Washing instructions:
Remove unwashable items (if any). All unwashable items are removable. Place the quilt in a knotted pillowcase on a gentle wash cycle. After washing, roll in a dry towel to remove excess water then lay flat to dry.

Can I add a zipper, pocket, stuffed animal, etc.?

Yes! We have an accessory section in which you can add an additional fidget item. Please specify in "notes to seller" which extra fidget you would Iike.
